Cliché Buffet...

I can't front, I love this video by Damn D. I love it like I love to drink. And smoke. And eat red meat. And stay up late. And listen to Project Pat. And all the other things that I know better than to do.

Like, it's so bad it's good. Litterally, you can find every bad Hip Hop video cliché in here.

"War Haunted"

So Warren Ellis, an award winning writer who I first learned about when I was introduced to The Authority, one of the most bad ass comic books ever. He also wrote Fell, which I heard is brilliant but has been collecting dust under my desk for months now. Maybe this weekend.

Anyways, he had a pretty interesting photoshop/art collection on his blog today that's the work of Sergei Larenkov of Fima-Psuchopadt.


If you havn't seen "Chocolate" (I have no idea why it's called that by the way)the really cool martial arts movie that was released in early 2008, you're missing out.

Q-Tip - Renaissance Rap (Remix)

This is dope, it features Busta Rhymes, Raekwon & Lil Wayne, because I think at this point, legally, every other Hip Hop song that drops has to feature Lil Wayne.

Dipset Producer "AraabMuzik" -VS- A Beat Machine

This is sick. The quality of the video gets better as the video progresses too, so hang in there, it's worth it.

A Side of Ketchup: 24

Every week I'll devote myself to "catching up" on a different TV show that I've been slacking off on watching. Praise the gods for the interweb and
I dig 24.

There I said it.

Nokia 8800:The Most Obnoxious Phone On Earth

So I don't understand what's the deal with the Nokia 8800, which when I last checked was at best an adequate (albeit very sleek and cool looking) world phone with shitty battery life and an uncomfortable key pad and an inflated price tag (I use to be a tech editor).

Somehow though, it's become a medium for boutique artist to test how ostentatious they can make this thing look.

The Intense 10 Seconds With Kevin Liles

Welcome to the newest feature on, an interview segment called the “intense-ten-seconds”, were we find an interesting person and chat with them for a few seconds because we don't have all day to be talking to people, y'know?

Glorious Vulgarity!

So, in the last 24 hours I watched the entire fourth season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and in all honesty it was time well spent. Ok, it might not have been "well spent" but it was a truly enjoyable slew of hours.

Pinky Ring Scale: Vol.1

If you're scratching your head and thinking, "What the hell is a "Pinky Ring Scale?", get educated here and read on. We'll wait...

Now that we're all caught up, here goes my inaugural review:

"Street Art"...

I spotted this on friday.

According to the artists website:

"When The East Is In The House..."

So I thought this piece in the New York Times about Hip Hop in China was interesting. You Can Read It Here, but if you're too lazy, here's an exerpt:

The Inaugural Par-tay...

OK, so, hooray already, Obama, Blah-Blah-Blah, lets rock right?


I was actually watching Futurama on comedy central before I found out that a big ass party was going down on the TV and as soon as I flipped to the channel I saw the Huxtables Obamas slow dancing to the Etta James song "At Last" being sung by Beyonce.

I realize that this show has been on for a while and I missed a big Obama speech or something.

I left TV on that channel and a few things occured to me. In this order:

1.I wonder if it bothers Beyonce to sing this song now, because that movie was such a flop I'm sure that the embarrassment of that movie is now linked to that song for her like it is for me. The Obamas look like a happy couple and that's dope.

Also Beyonce's nipples are LUNGING out at me, seriously, click the picture for a larger view if you don't believe me. The hell is that dress made of?

2.Jaime Fox seems drunk. I wonder if he's drunk. Oh look, it only took him 20 seconds to make an inappropriate joke about Obama's blackness. Great.

3.Man Stevie Wonder lost all the hair on top of his head but he's still rocking the braids or dreads or whatever that is. If he could see, I bet he would've shaved his head by now. I think letting him walk around like that is criminal, his handlers should be ashamed.

4.There are too many people singing "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" right now.

Also, I don't think I've ever wanted Mary J. Blidge more than I do right this moment.

5.I hate Shakira's voice, I'm baffled by her celebrity. She's not even hot. I'm not even gonna post a picture of her when I blog about this later.

6.Wowzers, there's a super bad mulatress named Spirit being interviewed. Apparently, her mom was part of the little rock 9 and she's talking about how she won an essay writing contest to be here tonight. she got a big ol' wide navel that I can see through her dress. those are the types of human flaws I find hot. (this post was delayed for hours because I was busy looking for a picture of this broad)

7.Ray Romano? He still does stand up? Wow, he's bombing hard, also I just saw a really hard edit, I think he said an off color joke that got cut. He's REALLY bombing. This is a train wreck.

8. Jesus, here's Jay-Z, with a live band, singing a wack song I've never heard. Why is he telling people to put their lighters in the air? Surely all lighters were confiscated on the way in.

9.Ok, Jay-Z and these fucking glasses. What the fuck already? Who is dressing this dude? Clearly he's surrounded by yes men. Or maybe he's trying to force some sort of trend. Maybe every one's wearing these stupid glasses and I didn't notice, maybe I'm the one who's bugging.

10.No, he looks stupid. And this song is boring. The "Put your lighters up" being part of the chorus but not a single lighter being put up is hysterical. I remember reading that Obama is a Jay-Z fan and is able to quote his "American Gangster" album. I wonder if he likes that "My President Is Black" song, I don't have a problem with that song, I just think it sounds like Jay-Z pulled that verse out of his ass and the whole "My president is black/My Car is Blue..." thing is fucking absurd. Honestly, that can't be the type of Hip Hop we're gonna be dedicating to the first black president. And the glasses seriously, what is that?

11.Alicia Key's is just great. I just wanna smell the fingers of whatever guy or allegedly girl gets to regularly kiss her goodnight.

12.What's all this then?! 15 weirdos on trampoline shoes? I put on a tux for this? How much is this costing the American people again? Fox News is gonna have a field day with this.

13. Great, Shakira, singing a song I've never heard in my life, this whole party has officially Jumped The Shark.

14.Obama's being interviewed by TNT's Sheryl Miller. Oh wait, my bad.

15.Vanessa Williams is a Milf-and-a-half

and she's introducing...

16.Dear God, it's Stevie Wonder and his giant head. Singing something off the B-Side of The Woman in Read Apparently. No wait, is this a new song? Whatever.

17.God bless Stevie for keeping the harmonica alive. Like who else besides him, Beck and John Popper even still knows how to play that thing.

18.And speaking of Stevie, Why the hell is Stevie doing Celebrity Dance club or whatever that is? He can't possibly be in need of money. What lifestyle is he trying to keep up? He could live in a studio apartment and not know the difference. Honestly.

19.I'm dying for one of those Dominoes Pizza sandwiches, I heard they're gross, but I gotta try one.

20.Leonardo DiCaprio looks crazy uncomfortable the way he's all smushed into the crowd like that. That one dude is breathing down his kneck hard.

Also, I'm now convinced that Obama is a mutant and his mutant super power is clearly the ability to turn A-List celebrities into sycophants.

21.Hey look, it's Joe Bidden, I swear I really forgot that he even existed for a minute. He really lucked out politically. Everyone in the crowd is probably gonna use this opportunity to go pee or smoke, or take a hit of acid or something.

22.Kerry Washington looks stellar, who's she introducing? Faith Hill? C'mon DVR, lets rock.

23.Hey cool, Lucy Liu. Star of "Charlies Angels" and "Charlies Angels 2:Full Throttle"! Awesome!!

And she's introducing Sting and...dear God, Stevie Wonder and his harmonica machine.

24. They're singing "Brand New Day", this must be the finale. I wish Faith would come out so that she and Sting could do a tribute to Biggie. That would be dope in the worst kind of way. Man, Sting's beard is gnarly. I was about to shave but fuck that, I'm riding my beard out for the rest of the winter.

25. Wow, that's a nice crowd shot. There sure were alot of people there. Holy shit, look at how that broad is staring at Denzel Washington, she wants him bad. I bet if her husband caught her staring like that they would have a super awkward ride home after that.

26. Obama's back out with his michelle, talking about something or other.

27. So, the shows over and the credits are rolling while circus performers twirl on ribbons or some shit. I should pay attention to the credits, clearly these producers are the most important people in TV. Maybe I can pitch my awesome Hip Hop game show to one of them.

28. Well that was fun, I'm sure everyone on that stage feels super validated about thier career.

29. I can't wait to test out that electric blanket tonight. It has a remote!

First Day Of School, 5 Years From Now...

I made this same joke the day after Obama beat out Hilary, but I didn't draw this. I gotta stop being lazy and start drawing again.

Houston has two seperate (but equal) MLK Day Parades...

I noticed in the Houston Chronicle that there is a set of fueding, idiot organizations that have been throwing two seperate MLK Day parades and thus completely missing the point Dr. King was trying to make.

here's a quote from the story in the Houston Chronicle:

Jay-Z:My President Is Black Remix, Live 1-18-09

Jay-Z My President is black Remix LIVE 1-18-09 from pleasedontstare on Vimeo.

No More Smut At The Source...

So I saw in The New York Times today that The Source Magazine, the original monthly Hip Hop publication that's had pretty shitty luck over the last few years, is no longer going to be accepting advertisements from pornographic films, pornographic Web sites or escort services even though those ads usually account for half of the ads in the magazine.
Yes, half.

New Q-Tip: Manwomanboogie

In a perfect world I would be able to listen to this and other music like this on a radio station called "24 Hour Adult Contemporary Hip Hop". Or something like that.

Andre 3000's Clothing Company In Financial Distress...

Whooo-Ha has and exclusive story about how Andre 3000's clothing line is in the crapper. I personally am shocked to find out that more people didn't want to buy clothes from him.

Saigon Adresses the "Budden Beef".

He’s addressing this Budden track below if you didn’t know, I personally have lost track of all of Budden’s beef’s, I don’t think I’m posting any more about this or any of his other problems, the next Budden post I make will be a review of his new album, Padded Room, whenever that finally comes out.

Baltimore Highlands Album Release Party

So The Baltimore Sun gave a huge shout out to Baltimore rapper Dan Keech, AKA "Height", who recently put out a 12-track album in 12-inch vinyl form this week on Wham City Records called "Baltimore Highlands".

"Hood 2 Hood Blockumentary" Part 2. (Full Video 3 Hours)

If you have 3 hours to kill, check out this video, it's disturbing, tragic, and an 18 wheeler full of fireworks crashing into an elementary school.

Only scarier and more depressing. It's a sad yet sobbering reminder of what's happening in a lot of the communities that hope forgot.

Thier Description:

"Hood 2 Hood, The Blockumentary is an action packed film that takes you on a tour through America's highest crime rated neighborhoods.

Rich Kid Entertainment contacted all the underground hood connections from hoods across the country from California to New York, to the South and Midwest. Their connections opened the doors to their hoods and allowed them to capture the day-to-day actions of life in a crime-infested neighborhoods.

Film crews have never had access to footage like this, that includes everything from several pounds of marijuana and kilos of cocaine, fully automatic assault rifles, beatdowns, and thousands in cash earned in drug sales.

They traveled to over 29 different cities and neighborhoods that included the actual neighborhoods of today's top rap artists such as EMINEM (8 MILE), JAY-Z (MARCY PROJECTS), SUGE KNIGHT (ROSE CRANS ST), JUVENILE (MAGNOLIA PROJECTS), NAS (QUEENS BRIDGE PROJECTS) and many more.

This film contains exclusive interviews with real gang members, drug dealers, pimps and killers. Viewers be prepared to witness controversial and violent never seen before footage. Hood 2 Hood, The Blockumentary is reality T.V at it's best..."

Sam Hath No Fury...

So Samuel L. Jackson says that he may not be back as Nick Fury in Iron Man 2 or The Avengers because negotiations with Marvel have broken down.
Jackson has also recently been quoted in several news sources as saying that "Maybe somebody else will be Nick Fury or maybe Nick Fury won't be in it. There seems to be an economic crisis in the Marvel Comics world so [they're saying to me], 'We're not making that deal.'"

"Nah, we straight..."

Obama chillin' at Ben's Chili Bowl in Washington DC...

peep, the 29 second mark.
I swear, this dude is the coolest.

Dare to Dream...

Since a Black President is something I never thought I'd see in my lifetime, Obama's impending inauguration has completely opened up the realm of possibility in my mind.

I mean if he can get elected what other things might come to pass that I never dared dream of?

DMX Interview

Back when I was in High School this dude used to be known as a rapper.

Aquarium Warz Vol.3-Turtle Soup:The Rise Of Rainbow...

Happy New Year, and welcome to the debut of the wonderful world of me, Silent Murda, here at “fish and spaghetti”.

Seeing as how this is FISH and spaghetti (tell a friend to tell a friend if you haven't already) I thought I'd kick things off by telling y’all a true story about some real live FISH shit that unfolded at about 5:45pm est time Tuesday, somewhere in my magical palace AKA The lost City of ANTlantis.

I was smack in the middle of watching Clint Eastwood’s new flick Grand Torino on HD-BLD ( High Definition Boot Leg DVD) in my living room, and my daughter walks in and interrupts to ask “hey, can a catfish eat a turtle?”

Me being focused as hell on that HD-BLD responded, “nah turtles have shells, shits too hard” and waved the senorita off.

10 min later however, she returned with her friend and the same question, but this time she ended it with “oh well, I'm jus asking because the turtles’s not in the fish tank anymore and I didn't take him out”.

So I as I got up and made my way to the tank to have a peek, sure enough, that damn turtle was gone. Not a trace to be found. I also noticed the fat ass Redtail Catfish sunken in the corner lookin’ like somebody tied his tail to a brick and dropped him into the bottom of a river. I took a closer look and the brick that sunk his ass was our beloved RAINBOW the turtle!

I turned and said, “damn kid u was right, that fish ate that damn turtle!

So as the young ladies stood in shell shock (get it?) and eyes swelling up wit tears, ready to concede to the fact that RAINBOW the turtle was on his way to that big river in the sky, I said “y’all can't be serious, I'm not goin' out like that, yall ready for surgery?!"

They said “what?” And I said “what, are yall deaf?! I said are yall ready for surgery, because I lost too many good fish to the violence and cold world that is that fish tank (Exhibit A Pictured below, the recently deceased pet fish, "The President".) , I’m getting that damn turtle out of that damn fish now!”
I told the girls "go get me some rubber gloves and fast, we don't have alotta time here, and not those skimpy perm gloves, bring the big rubber yellow ones, and bring me that big green fish net too!"

And like good operating room techs that the girls followed all the directions and once I slipped those bad boys on, it was show time.

I scooped that fish out that tank, squeezed him by his fin and applied pressure to his jawbone until that bad boys mouth popped open and I could see RAINBOW floating around in the belly of the beast.
What I couldn't tell though, was if he was alive or dead so with my free hand I attempted to stick my fingers in and drag RAINBOW out but my fingers were too big and all I ended up doing was pushing him deeper into the abyss.

All wasn’t lost though because I noticed RAINBOW legs moving and I quickly told the girls to hand me a set of tweezers and I got busy.

I was able to grab young RAINBOW by his shell and pull him to his ultimate freedom. As RAINBOW slowly made his way back across that finish line from hell and the sweat dripped from my forehead, I turned to the girls and said “we did it…we made it yall...he’s alive."

The whole room burst into cheers, woo-haa’s and screams of YESSS!

It was perfect. I couldn't have drew that shit up any iller if you had the best weed and mushrooms in the world.

And as I pulled the rubber gloves off all I could think was damn, that was some crazy shit, why didn't any body record that or take pictures while I was going in and they all politely laughed and called me crazy.
But that I am.

And they appreciated as I knew (hoped) you would. It crossed my mind to throw RAINBOW back into the cesspool and try to recreate his almost untimely death but this time prepared with cameras rolling but I said nah. I don’t got time for that shit, this was my only day off, they either gonna believe it or not, fuck it.
So I typed this shit up and took some pics of all the major players in the movie and that's my Tru Hollyhood Story, it is what it is and its always poppin’, hope you enjoyed. Peace.


P.S. I'll be back, Oh yeah, ill be back, the saga always does.
